Not too long ago I wrote a post about how my wife and I recently picked up a kindle Fire HDX each in the Black Friday sales. Since then I’ve started purchasing a little bit of music again through the Amazon Store. I’ve always loved my music but for some reason – probably the expense of raising a family! – I’ve had a bit of a dry period recently when it comes to buying new albums or discovering new music.
Before I start this post, please let me just say that I absolutely LOVE being self-employed! I’ve spent pretty much all of my working life as a self-employed person and I really wouldn’t change it for the world. There is nothing like embarking on a new business project only to watch it turn into an income, and sometimes even provide an income for others too.
So you’ve finally managed to save up enough money to buy yourself a new car, great! There’s just one problem though. What on earth are you going to do with the old one??
If there is one thing that we could all use more of it is storage space. It just seems that you can never have enough of it, right? Sure we can do our best to reduce the amount of storage space we need by having a good old spring clean, but what if you really have discarded of every item that you are willing to see the back of but you still just don’t have enough storage space?
The difficulty with a lot of freelancers and self-starters is that they decide to break away from the corporate machine precisely because they loathe its bureaucracy. Ironically, working for yourself usually means more paperwork than ever.
